TIPS to Manage a child at home with MILD COVID SYMPTOMS I Dr. Nilesh Rao
"So if your child has been diagnosed with mild COVID 19 symptoms, you have to ensure that he is hydrated well and you are monitoring the vital parameters and the urine output. So antibiotics are routinely not recommended in children with covid 19 infection paractetamol may be given orally for control of fever. Also you can do sponging with warm water, you can give fruits rich in vitamins A and C that is locally available fruits and vegetables. It is prudent to do teleconsultation with a pediatrician whenever you have any queries and monitor the oxygen saturation with pulse oximeter 3 to 4 times a day and ensure that the oxygen saturation is more than 95%. We should also be aware of the danger signs which will be urgent transport or visits to a hospital. That is high fever lasting for more than 3 days, recurrent vomiting, loose stools, reduced urine output, excessive lethargy or sleepiness in the child, excessive rashes in the body or swelling of the limbs or things like fits or seizures"
BLACK FUNGUS' in children with COVID I Dr. Nilesh Rao
"The black fungus has caused a lot of panic recently during the second wave, so what is the black fungus? It is caused by an infection called as the “mucor” which is called as mucormycosis"
If a family member gets COVID how to prevent household spread? I Dr. Nilesh Rao
"If a family member is covid positive , it is prudent to isolate the family member who is positive enough in a separate room. So both parents are positive and there is no help, then it is better to wear double mask when handling the child and also to keep the house well ventilated and ensure a separate wash room for the child. Clean the high touch areas with soap or with a soap based liquid"
Can we get children vaccinated against Covid -19 soon? I Dr. Nilesh Rao
"There is ongoing research worldwide regarding vaccination in children and there are many studies which are in various phases. However we can expect vaccines by this year end or early 2022. We now the Indian vaccine covaxin trials are ongoing for 12 to 18 year old kids and also for 6 to 12 year old kids so we will wait for the results. The covishiled vaccines trial started in February 2021 , but has been halted due to various reasons. So currently in the united states the older kids are being vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines. There is also a new vaccine which is a recombinant nano particle protein based vaccine which is called as covovax which may be available in India by the year end"
Tips to protect CHILDREN from COVID 3rd Wave | Dr. Nilesh Rao
"As clearly outlined by the Indian academy of pediatrics guidelines for the 3rd wave, there is clearly no reasons to panic. As we know in the 2nd wave family clustering was one of the common scenario that we were commonly seeing wherein the adults used to bring the infection and subsequently the whole family was infected. So it makes logical sense that the immunization of adults is the most important measure to protect your child who is at home it is also important to understand that your child if infected may transmit the infection in the household contacts and so getting all the seniors vaccinated non priority basis is important. Children above 2 to 5 years can be trained to wear the mask properly and the adults should be the role models for the kids with respect to hand hygiene, social distancing norms and mask etiquettes"
Hospital admission & CT Scan in Covid +ve child | Dr. Nilesh Rao
"Those children who have mild to moderate covid infection can be managed conservatively without going to hospital provided we closely manage the hydration and manage the urine output well. Also we need to manage persistent infection like recurrent fevers persist infection and loose stools, reduced urine outputs. Also reduced are CT scans required n children? the CT scans are not required in vast majority of children with covid 19 infection. CT scan exposes children to unnecessary radiation. So it is recommended we seek the pediatricians advice and as per the pediatricians advice in selected cases only imaging and tests may be required"
